Greenpeace comms head moves to DPWN role

Fouad Hamdan, formerly head of communications at Greenpeace Deutschland, is to head the newly created PR department at Deutsche Post World Net (DPWN).

He takes up the Bonn-based role in January 2005, reporting to head of central group communications Manfred Harnischfeger, and will be responsible for strategic analysis, issues management, media monitoring, campaigns and events.

Hamdan started his career with the Deutsche Presse-Agentur, where he worked as a volunteer from 1987 to 1988. He worked there as a specialist in the Near East and the Islamic world until 1992, as a correspondent in Egypt and office director in Bahrain. He moved to Greenpeace in 1992 as a press spokesman, building up the Beirut office between 1995 and 1999, when he took over communications at the German head office in Hamburg.
